Library Innovation Lab: Exploring New Ways of Engaging California’s Immigrant Communities

America’s public libraries have played an important role in welcoming newcomers throughout our history. California Humanities builds on that legacy by growing capacity within California libraries to develop creative and innovative programs that respond to the needs of today’s immigrants and foster more inclusive communities in our state.

The Library Innovation Lab provides training, support, and resources to a cohort of programming librarians. This support enables them to design and implement new public humanities projects that reach and engage underserved immigrant groups in California.

For more information, or to learn how you can participate, contact Felicia Kelley at fkelley@calhum.org or visit our Library Innovation Grants Page.

Library Innovation Lab is supported in part by the US Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered in California by the State Librarian. Additional support provided by Wells Fargo  and the generosity of individual donors throughout California.
